Overview
An unlimited amount of data such as an infinite number of audios, videos, pictures, arbitrary files like XML and subtitle tracks can be stored in MKV files. Although, it has a similar concept that of AVI, MP4; etc., yet, there is one difference. It is an open-source software or has open specifications, whereas, others are different. Furthermore, it allows online streaming and fast seeking which are alluring features. It can be used with ease as it is highly adaptive and can accept any audio and video.
Technical description
Files in MKV format store each track in varied dataline. Files in this format use distinctive extensions for storing the data. The extension .MKV is used only for video files(may have subtitles and audio),.MK3D for stereoscopic video, .MKA and .MKS for audio and subtitles respectively. The codecs that are linked to this format are .SRT, Vobsub, .USF(Universal Subtitle Format) and .SSA; etc. It should be noted that not all the media players support this file format but only selective ones like VLC. Besides this, ‘Matroska' is derived from a Russian word that is ‘Matryoshka’ and it refers to a hollow Russian doll which opens to uncover another doll, this doll then again opens to reveal next doll and the process goes on. Other meanings for this word in Russia are a sailor suit and a female sailor. Technical details in depth are available only for private and commercial use.

Overview
WEBM is a multimedia container used for both audio and video formats. It is open-source and royalty-free software due to this, it can be implemented and changed for improvement by any developer. It uses different codecs to compress files. For instance, for video streams compression it uses VP8 or VP9 video codecs and for audio streams, it uses Vorbis or Opus audio codecs. It provides videos of the highest quality and that too with real-time delivery. It provides users with the playback option on any device which is due to the low computational footprint. It is licensed under BSD(A family of acceptable free software licenses). Besides this, it has another project named as Webp for images.
Technical description
Its structure is based on the Matroska container. That is why it can support both multiplexing and de-multiplexing. It uses core technologies like HTML, HTTP and TCP/IP which can be easily implemented and this is the main reason for its success. VP8 and VP9 are highly efficient to provide video of the highest quality. It is cost-effective due to its greater efficiency for bandwidths. It is a substitute for H.264 and MPEG4 which are patented software and have copyright. Videos of this format allow playback but it is possible only in Android version 2.3 that is Gingerbread and above. When ‘Rockchip’ came into the market in 2001 it made possible the implementation of full hardware of 1080p. Also, LiVES video editor version 1.4.9 allows coding and deflating of videos in real-time.
